photoblog image Sudbury Hall Re-visited 1/5

Sudbury Hall Re-visited 1/5

Two weeks ago I showed you Sudbury Hall from the outside and also the church next to the house.  In October we returned and went inside the house.  This short series is a few of the shots I took during that visit and, being a National Trust property, they were all taken hand-held without flash as per the regulations.

 

The main staircase in the house is, as you can see, very artistically carved and decorated and I suspect even a very wide lens would have a job getting it all in.  Also out of picture at the bottom is a rope past which one is not allowed to go.

Wild, crazy opulence, Brian. It never ceases to amaze me how some people lived!
Brian Walbey: They must have had lots of money Ginnie to build places like this. Don't forget this house is only about 30 minutes from tracy should you go the her place again in the future.
It is great that more and more NT properties allow photography inside. Great staircase!
Brian Walbey: It is a lovely staircase Bill, too much for my lens.

I would find this place too fussy if it were my house Brian. Great to visit though.
Brian Walbey: Lots of nooks and crannies to harbour the dust Chad.
That's some collection of artwork for a staircase, somewhat overpowering to my mind. The Image came out well to say you couldn't use flash
Brian Walbey: yes quite a flamboyant staircase Martin. It's only recently that the NT have allowed any photography in the houses at all.
Excellent detail captured without a flash, Brian. Can you imagine the number of man hours it took to create such intricate work for this staircase?
Brian Walbey: yes it is a beautiful staircase beverly, too much for my lens to get it all in.

Blimey ... how do they do all the dusting ..
Brian Walbey: With difficulty I should think Richard.
Lovely craftsmanship in that staircase!
Brian Walbey: I won't argue with that Tom.

Very ornate, Brian; I'd hate t ohave to do the cleaning. But then perhaps one has staff for such mundane activities.
Brian Walbey: No doubt the NT volunteers clean it Alan.

This is beautiful, some staircase.
Great picture, nice POV.
Brian Walbey: It is indeed Astrid, thanks for your comment.
A very ornately carved staircase Brian. I'd hate to have the job of dusting that!
Brian Walbey: It is a magnificent staircase Sheila, but yes, difficult to clean I guess.
wonderful shot of this magnificent building, long may they be kept this way
Brian Walbey: The whole building is quite attractive Derek as you will see this week.

I think I might fall up the stairs, from being preoccupied with the gorgeous portraits everywhere.
Brian Walbey: Yes they are very good pictures indeed.
